China does not like birds of doom, nor the outspokenness of its economists. Hao Hong, one of China's most reputable analysts, quit his job at one of the country's major state-owned banks, days after his public accounts on Chinese social media WeChat and Weibo were censored. Regularly quoted by foreign media, including Le Monde, Hao Hong knew how to explain the strengths and weaknesses of the Chinese economy, but did not hesitate to point out the inconsistencies in official statistics.

Several renowned Chinese specialists have had their social media accounts deleted after pointing out the consequences of the country's health strategy.

Hao Hong's Weibo account, which had 3 million followers, disappeared on Saturday, April 30, while his WeChat account was blocked on suspicion of "breaking the rules" of the platform.
